Eternal Pink and Vivid Blue-Green!
The Eternal Pink diamond is extraordinary!
On its GIA diamond grading report, no. 2225541747 dated November 3, 2022, it states that the diamond is Fancy Vivid Purplish Pink, Natural color, and Internally Flawless in clarity. It also comes with a special letter from the GIA attesting to the rarity and intense degree of saturation of the diamond, and a GIA monograph detailing the mining, cutting and grading of the diamond, describing it as “a stunning specimen; one of nature’s great wonders transformed through artistry and ingenuity,” complimenting not only Mother Nature, but the diamond cutter (or team of cutters)!
Sotheby’s has a wonderful write-up on the pink, some of the history of pink diamonds, where it may get its unique color, and how Diacore studied and then cut the stone to make it what it is today.
For us, this is simply an amazing hue. Purplish Pink is such an exciting and warm color compared to straight Pink. Its vivid saturation is outstanding, understanding that even the Vivid grade is a range, and where this diamond is definitely far beyond the beginning of the Vivid range.
Sotheby’s uses words like “electrifying” and “astonishing” to describe this gem. Others may call it Bubblegum or Fuchsia.
But however you call it, know that according to many, “it makes all other Fancy Vivid diamonds seem pale by comparison.”
“The GIA’s monograph on the Eternal Pink diamond notes that its rarity is ‘difficult to overstate.'”
“With its remarkable Fancy Vivid Purplish-Pink color, Internally Flawless clarity and impressive 10.57 carat weight, the Eternal Pink is arguably the most important pink diamond ever to appear at auction.”
Enough said. Now watch the sale.
Fancy Vivid Blue-Green Diamond Ring
Now what an amazing color we have here. A Fancy Vivid – the most saturated color grade a fancy color diamond can receive, Blue-Green hue – which means that it has approximately an equal amount of blue as it has green. Two very rare colors and this diamond has both! Such a rare and beautiful color for diamond.
Where is the Color?
Now, if you were to examine the images of the diamond ring provided by Sotheby’s, you would see that the diamond does not appear to have much color when viewed from the side. This might then remind you that fancy color diamonds are color graded face up as opposed to colorless and near colorless diamonds being color graded face down, through the back.
Checking the Report
But then you go to the image of the GIA’s diamond grading report (or GIA’s website to perform a report check), and you find that the “color distribution” says “even.” Now this may make you believe that the color distribution is even throughout the diamond, and that what you are seeing in the sideview image may just be an interesting photo.
But then you find a comment on the report that says, “Patches of color are not shown.” So it’s not even distribution face down (or from the side) but it is face up?
Don’t Buy Paper
And this is when we tell you, “Never ever buy a gemstone by simply looking at the grading report. You are buying Mother Nature’s art, and it deserves you looking at the actual piece.
This diamond is a 1 carat, fancy color, with an I1 clarity grade, and it sold for $482,6900 dollars! That price tells you to appreciate the art of Mother Nature.
Accompanied by GIA report no. 6224873688 dated April 17, 2023 stating that the diamond is Fancy Vivid Blue-Green, Natural color, I1 clarity.
